storage and bandwidth problems.

Im with you.
we all kind of jumped in to videoblog week. it was a great jump.
i know my Typepad account gives me 3GB of bandwidth per month.
Ive had about 500 visitors this past week.

But this is good.
The Tools, Process, and Presenatation are one set of challenges that we all
seem to be overcoming, or at least working on.

Now there's problem of disk space and bandwidth.
Peter and I(jump in here Peter..) want to rent our own server specifically for
videoblogging.
if we get at least 5 people, it'll be cheap and we'll have crazy amount of
storage and bandwidth.
Peter has the details…

unfortuantely, i dont see any other way around it.
Ive glanced at Bit Torrent, peer-to-peer, but i dont think it'll work for a
video I want to host on my blog.
Bit Torrent seems to be best for downloading high-quality movies, videos, and
DAT files.
My friend uses it to get David Bowie concerts that were recorded live with DAT.
they sound perfect.
but not what we're doing with streaming videos on our blogs.
